Altered cabinet with drawers.

Hello again!
I'm back much later than I expected with this post....
 It's an altered cabinet that I made last summer at Crafter's & Co in Coleraine.
I didn't get it finished at the class but I enjoyed decorating it at home :)

I started by painting the cabinet with brown paint and then covering it with crackle glaze.
Once that was dry I painted over it with beige paint and it was brilliant to see the cracks appear as it dried.

The inside is decorated with various papers and the edges inked with distress inks.

The drawers are just perfect for storing metal bits and pieces, mini spools, antique buttons and some  fabric tapes.

I added rub-ons to the inside of the doors and some of the drawers.
The roses were made by tearing cream card in a spiral shape, inking with distress ink and rolling in a rose shape. I then added leaves, lace and buttons.

This is the cabinet before I started and it's made by Rayher hobby.

That's it from me...there are a lot of photos, but I hope you enjoyed them :)

I'd just like to remind you of the Christmas Coundown at CCW and Lou
has made some gorgeous tags here.
A wee sneak peek.

Thank you for visiting today,
I hope your weekend is going well!
Mine looks like it's going to be busy...I'd love a lie in, but I'm sure I won't get it..... lol
Take care,
Sarah xx
